The "Forms.TextBox" control does not programmatically add a control in Outlook 2007

  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007


When you pass a control that you created by adding a Forms.TextBox control to FormRegion.SetControlItemProperty, the control is sometimes removed from the form in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. Additionally, the SetControlItemProperty method fails.


This behavior occurs because Outlook 2007 replaces the Forms.TextBox control with the Outlook.olkTextBox object.


To work around this behavior, perform one of the following actions:

  • Use the Outlook.olkTextBox object instead of the Forms.TextBox control.
  • Set the FormRegion.SuppressControlReplacement property to true before you add the control. This prevents Outlook 2007 from replacing the control.
